The Blessing of Losing Two Sets of Keys

When I lived in St. Louis 15 years ago, I was walking in the park with lots of fallen leaves and lost my set of car keys in them. I looked and looked and I could not find them. My husband was out of town so the next day I went for a walk in the same park with his set of car keys. I dropped them in the leaves and could not find them either. 

I had to get my car towed to the dealer to get a master key and I had to get a locksmith out to our apartment to make a new front door key. I told the locksmith that I had to trust God with this and he gave me a golden nugget of wisdom. He said, “You don’t need to trust God, you need to keep trusting God!” It’s an ongoing relationship we have with the Lord; day by day, hour by hour. 

I am a mental health counselor, and I often share this wisdom of “KEEP trusting” with others. I thank God that I lost two sets of car keys and met this Godly man in St. Louis! Keep trusting God with your losses and embrace the life He has given you.
